Great place to enjoy Philly whether you are walking, biking or running. Also in warmer weather it's a prefect place to have a picnic and take a break by the river.

This is a cute place to see from across the river, especially in the evening when it is lit up however, up close it is a bit disappointing. You cannot walk by the water and the Sunday we visited must have been trash pick up day as there were piles of trash in front of the houses including many alcoholic beverage boxes.

Quintessential old Philadelphia. It's great to walk the waterfront and just as good, if not better, at night from the road.

It's more amusing now that there are female rowers as well as coxswains.Not perhaps a place to walk alone after dark.

the entire boathouse row area is great...especially if you run or bike. Walk to Art Museum or into Rittenhouse square and eat outside (weather permitting) at Parc, Steven Starrs fun french bistro
